Michel Barnier, Chief Negotiator for the preparation and conduct of the negotiations with the United Kingdom, joined a Political Breakfast at Körber Foundation to speak to members of the German Bundestag as well as experts from the civil service, think tanks and the private sector. Mr Barnier gave participants an update state of the negotiations between the EU and the United Kingdom, followed by his perspective on the transition period and post-Brexit EU-UK relations.
